Viagra: How To Take It to Maximize Your Pleasure

Viagra won’t give you a spontaneous erection, but it can make it possible for an impotent man to temporarily get and keep an erection suitable for intercourse. Knowing how the little blue pill works can help you to get maximum value and pleasure each time you take it.

 

With prices ranging from $35 to $45 per 50-milligram dose, Viagra is a considerable investment. To ensure that they get the most bang for their buck, users should be mindful of a few tips to help them make the most of each and every dose they take.

The first thing to remember is how Viagra works. It doesn’t create an erection in and of itself, but it optimizes blood flow to the penis in a way that makes it easier to get — and keep — an erection. So bear in mind that to obtain an erection, more is required than simply taking a pill. It’s recommended that you take Viagra about an hour before you expect sexual activity to begin.

With or Without Food?

While it’s not dangerous to take Viagra with food, many men find that taking Viagra on an empty stomach makes its action more predictable. Taking Viagra after or right before a substantial meal can slow down its entry into your system because your digestive system is busy working on digesting your food. For some men, this is not a problem, but others notice a delay in effectiveness when they take Viagra along with food. This is particularly true if the meal is high in fat.

Thus, if Viagra seems to be taking longer than usual to work, ask yourself if you’ve eaten a heavy meal in the past hour. If so, that might be the reason for the delay. One reviewer put it this way: “I took it about an hour ahead of time and an hour-and-a-half after eating. Other than a slightly stuffy nose, I had no other side effects.”

Interaction with Alcohol

Typically, alcohol doesn’t have an effect on blood levels of Viagra, and Viagra doesn’t have an effect on blood levels of alcohol. That said, taking Viagra when you’re drinking can affect performance. Remember, alcohol alone can affect your ability to attain an erection. Many men find that while a little alcohol can help them relax and get into the mood, too much alcohol can prevent an erection. Taking Viagra without alcohol makes things more predictable since you’re removing the variable of alcohol’s effects on sexual performance.

If you plan on taking Viagra on a special night that may include drinking, it’s wise to limit your drinking so that you’ll minimize any effects of alcohol on your ability to get an erection. As one reviewer said, “It will work for me if I take it on an empty stomach — no food, alcohol, or soda drinks for 4 hours; just plain water.”

Save by Splitting Tablets

A pill splitter can help you to cut Viagra costs.

 

One way that plenty of men “get the most” from their Viagra is by being prescribed 100-milligram tablets and then splitting them. Most pharmacies price 100-milligram Viagra the same as 50-milligram Viagra. Therefore, if your prescription is for 100-mg tablets, but you only require the 50-mg dosage, you’ll get twice as much Viagra for your money. A splitter only costs a couple of dollars at any drugstore or mass retailer. And if you order from eDrugstore.com, you’ll get a complimentary pill splitter with your initial order.

One happy Viagra user  said, “I take 50 milligrams (after splitting a 100-mg tablet) on an empty stomach about an hour before a meal. It works great…some face flushing and sometimes a mild headache…worth it.”

Obtain Only from Trusted Source

If you choose not to obtain a prescription for Viagra from your family physician or pick it up from the neighborhood pharmacy (a situation that is understandably awkward for some men) and want to obtain Viagra online, work only with an experienced online facilitator. One such is eDrugstore.com that contracts with licensed U.S. pharmacists who dispense only genuine Viagra by Pfizer based on a prescription from a licensed U.S. physician.

The risks of ordering what may or may not be Viagra from a rogue online pharmacy are simply too great. Your online provider should have a street address in the United States and a U.S. phone number. Your health is too valuable to trust to just any online provider claiming to sell Viagra.
